Collaborative Stage for TNM 7 - Revised 05/26/2011 [ Schema ]

Tumor Location after Primary Cytoreduction (Debulking) Surgery

- Note 1: The surgery to remove as much of the cancer in the pelvis and/or abdomen as possible, reducing the "bulk" of the cancer is called "debulking" or "cytoreduction" surgery. It is performed when there is widespread evidence of advanced stage of ovarian cancer with obvious spread to other organs outside the ovary, typically in the upper abdomen, intestines, the omentum (the fat pad suspended from the transverse colon like an apron), the diaphragm, or liver.
- Note 2: Optimal debulking is described as removal of all tumor except for residual nodules that measure no more than 1 cm in maximum diameter.
- Note 3: According to the AJCC, "In advanced disease, the most important prognostic factor is the residual disease after the initial surgical management. . . . Not only is the size of the residual important, but the number of sites of residual tumor also appears to be important." Neoadjuvant chemotherapy may be given to obtain optimum cytoreduction with less aggressive surgery; thus recording whether the patient received chemotherapy prior to this procedure provides necessary data for treatment and survival analysis.
